Windows 7: Runtime Error! Program: C\:windows\system32\nvvsvc.exe

09 Sep 2011   #1

Windows7 Ultimate x64
Runtime Error! Program: C\:windows\system32\nvvsvc.exe

There are a half dozen threads from the past several years addressing the same issue - none have a solution or explain what the cause is.

This is the exact text of the error:
MS Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program: C\:windows\system32\nvvsvc.exe
This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

In safe mode the startup stops at ATiPcie.sys; search found similar black screen with mouse complaints

The machine setup has worked fine for several months, and shutdown without any events last evening. This morning at startup the popup with a black screen appeared. I have tried all of the suggestions posted on the treads.

  • Attempted to install autocad2012sp1x64.exe but it did not install due to the version installed is Civil 3D 2012 not ACAD2012.
  • Installed without issues - a new icon appeared in my ACAD GUI but have not tried it yet
  • Changed my clear temporary files at startup script from shutdown to startup, restarted several times and seemed to work fine
  • Cleared several GB of temp files that ACAD C3D accumulates - this has been done several times without problems
  • This machine is used as a CAD workstation and is not used for games, entertainment, social networking (besides help forum threads), or other common uses that attract viruses. The only web browsing is to read the news and email.
  • Note that this machine has a PCI-E solid state harddrive in Raid 0 - occasionally it triggers a disk check at startup due what has been assumed a driver issue that results in a poor shutdown, it has not been anything more than annoying - one of the other threads had a similar SSD raid 0 setup. I removed the startup script and ran a checkdisk in case they were conflicting.
I have access to the drive through a backup drive running the same OS; the specifics of the machine setup are documented here on a wiki page cee241:software:settings:tower [CIFE Wiki]

Finding a solution or at least the cause so it can be avoided next time is the goal.

Research: these are the six solutions posted to help forum threads

How about run nvvsvc.exe in compatibility mode for xp sp3 it the above doesn't solve your issue.

Sorry, I did not specify that I have the black screen of death for safe mode and normal boot - I cannot access the operating system.

Windows 7
nvvsvc.exe Runtime Error - Simple Solution

I have read through loads of forum entries on this problem and as far as I can see this program does not need to run, so it can be safely disabled and the error message should disappear if it is disabled.

1. In search box type msconfig
2. Run msconfig
3. Click services tab
4. Click services tab top bar to put in alpha order
5. Uncheck NVIDIA Driver Service
6. Click OK
7. Restart

With a bit of luck you won't have the error message and everything will run perfectly well without this program.
